I think it's because William is not the direct heir to the throne yet- Charles is. There really isn't a reason for William to have any royal duties. I think the British royals are just praying that he makes it through school.
Guillaume, however, is directly next in line. He's very aware of his position. Cutie. :)
Lollies!

Guillaume was born on 11 Nov 1981. William was born on 21 June 1982. Guillaume is older.

21. Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume in the funeral procession
22. preparing to go reading in honour to Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte with his cousins Princess Marie-Christine of Austria, Princess Marie-Gabrielle of Nassau and Princess Maria Anunciata of Liechtenstein
23. Guillaume reading some emotional words in Luxembourgish which were very approved by the public

Note: For Guillaume it was the second funeral after the funeral of his great-grandmother Charlotte at 15.07.1985 (but I think he didn't participate with 3 years and 8 months at that one)

Thanks for the photos.

From http://www.wort.lu/, is Guillaume the baby that M-T is holding and J-C is looking at in one picture?

A transcript would be so awesome. Does anyone know if there was a video? Because then we could hear him speak.... *sigh of happiness*

there isn't a translation, but what was said by the grandchildren during the funeral is on the government website, under the funeral programme; it's in pdf format. perhaps drimal can translate what was said for us. hehe.

The prayer of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume in the church
Prince Guillaume spoke in Luxembourgish: Papp am Himmel, du hues onser léiwer Groussmamm erlaabt, dem Lëtzebuerger Land ze déngen fir dat och mir no hirem Beispill fi déi do sinn, deenen mir op eisem Wee begéinen.
Translation:Our Lord, you have permitted our dear grandmother, to be in service of Luxembourg, so that we are looking for those which we meet on our way and follow her example.
